Pharmaceutical compounding for pet and animal care is a popular solution to animal health problems. Animals also suffer from disease and malaise, and they are not always able to easily communicate their discomfort, and can be extremely difficult to treat with traditional medications.

Dosages can be tricky, and understanding a pet's response to medication can be a challenge. Just like people, animals have unique bodies and respond best to formulas which accommodate specific needs and conditions. Animal size, shape, and known sensitivities are considered. Compounded solutions for pets provide customized formulations to treat animals of canine, avian, feline, and equine species.

Pets often refuse medications because of unfavorable taste or texture. Treats or liquid medications are formulated with chicken, beef and fish flavors to mask the unknown medication and bad taste. Flavored treats, transdermal applications, and liquids are common applications for veterinary care.
